Track Name: Enjoy The Ride
 ENJOY THE RIDE     Words & Music by P.PASCOE

LONELY       WITHOUT YOU
IT'S ONLY   BUT A FEW    DAYS

IT WAITS BEFORE ME    LIKE A LONG HARD CLIMB
YET IF YOU SAW ME HERE    YOU’D FIND I’M ALL RIGHT

JUST A LITTLE SHAKY,     COULD BE THE RIDE
IF I FALL ASLEEP DON’T WAKE ME

UNTIL WE'RE THERE UNTIL WE CLIMB  DOWN FROM THE BUS
I’LL CONQUER MY FEAR    I’LL SURVIVE I MUST

REMEMBER,  ENJOY THE RIDE   
WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW DEEP INSIDE
YOU CAN CHANGE THE OUTCOME      NOW

HOLD ME IN YOUR MIND       REMEMBER TO BE KIND
COS EVERYONE HAS FEARS THEY DONT KNOW
AND EVERYONE FINDS IT HARD TO LET GO

REMEMBER,  ENJOY THE RIDE.   
WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW DEEP INSIDE
YOU CAN CHANGE THE OUTCOME      NOW

YOU CAN CHANGE HOW YOU FEEL WITH LOVE
YOU CAN CHANGE HOW YOU FEEL WITH LOVE

ENJOY THE RIDE     ENJOY THE RIDE      ENJOY THE RIDE.
Track Name: It's True
IT’S TRUE Words & Music by P.PASCOE

HONESTY WONT BE DENIED
LOOKING BACK THROUGH ALL THOSE YESTERDAYS
OH WOUNDED PRIDE
ALL ONE DAY WILL BE RE-PAID
LONELY STACK OF ALL THOSE ‘MEANT TO DOS’
WON'T GO AWAY

IT’S TRUE SO TRUE


SILVER FISH FROM DEEP BLUE SEA
ALL THE TANGLED THREADS OF THOUGHT APPEAR
AND TROUBLE ME
LONGING WISH TO BE SET FREE
SO SWEEP THE BOARDS & TREAD WHERE YOU KNOW WHERE
A CHILD COULD SEE

WHAT WAITS FOR YOU

AHH AHH AHH IT’S TRUE


WANDER THROUGH YOUR TWILIGHT YEARS
ALL THE FRIENDS YOU HAD AND TOOK FOR GRANTED
HAVE DISAPPEARED
IT’S TRUE SO TRUE
Track Name: I'll Tell You What
I’LL TELL YOU WHAT Words & Music by P.PASCOE

WELL THE RIVERS ARE DRYING UP AND SO IS THE LAND
THE ANIMALS ARE CRYING OUT FOR A HELPING HAND
MOTHER NATURE LIES WOUNDED LIKE A BEAST IN A CAGE
THERE’S SOMETHING I’LL TELL YOU WHAT WEVE GOTTA COME OF AGE


ALL THE PEOPLE THEY’RE LAYING LOW WITH THEIR SHINY SCREENS
UNDER STEEPLES THEY PRAYING NOW THIS AINT WHAT IT SEEMS
FINANCE IS CRIPPLED BY CORPORATE GREED
THERE’S SOMETHING I’LL TELL YOU WHAT THIS AINT WHAT WE NEED

I’LL TELL YOU WHAT


YEAH THE TEMPERATURE’S CREEPING UP FASTER THAN WE THINK
YET WE’RE JUST SLEEPING THROUGH WARNINGS IN DREAMS
THE ATMOSPHERE’S THINNING OUT THE ICE IS HALF GONE
THERE’S SOMETHING I’LL TELL YOU WHAT WHEN ITS GONE WE'RE GONE


I’LL TELL YOU WHAT


HERE’S SOMETHING TO FINISH WITH FOR HANGIN’ ON TO
IT’S MORE THAN A WISH LIST IT’S SUNG AND IT'S TRUE
WERE NOT STANDING STILL THERE’S CHANGE ALL AROUND
THERE’S SOMETHING I’LL TELL YOU WHAT IT’S JUST WHAT WE'VE FOUND

I’LL TELL YOU WHAT
Track Name: Plain Sailing
PLAIN SAILING Words & Music by P.PASCOE

IF YOUR HEART IS BREAKING A BARE TRUTH’S REVEALED
YOU'VE STARTED WAKING AS YOU FACE THE NEW DEAL

AND START ALL OVER AGAIN YOUR HEART’S ON THE MEND


A RISK YOU WERE TAKING TURNED OUT A BAD RIDE
NOW YOUR WORLD IS SHAKING EVERYTHING’S ON THE SLIDE

CARRY ON DONT GIVE UP YET A SAD SONG HELPS WHEN YOU'RE UPSET


WHEN EVERY THING SEEMS TO BE FAILING
KEEP HANGING IN TIL IT'S RIGHT
NOBODY SAID ITS PLAIN SAILING
STEER BY THE STARS IN THE NIGHT
AND WHEN THE CLOUDS ROLL ON IN
AND YOU PATIENCE WEARS THIN

OUR WORLD IS TURNING THE TRUTH LIES THERE WAITING
WHILE WE ARE LEARNING AND KEEP HESITATING

IN THE NIGHT WHEN SLEEP’S A SLIM CHANCE
SEEMS IT'S RIGHT BEYOND YOUR GRASP

WHEN EVERY THING SEEMS TO BE FAILING
KEEP HANGING IN TIL IT'S RIGHT
NOBODY SAID IT'S PLAIN SAILING
STEER BY THE STARS IN THE NIGHT
AND WHEN THE CLOUDS START TO CLEAR
ALL YOU WORRIES DISAPPEAR
Track Name: Yesterday's Race
YESTERDAY'S RACE Words & Music by P.PASCOE

THE HUMAN RACE SOMETHING’S GOTTA GIVE
WE ALL WANT TO LIVE IN PEACE, BUT WE GOTTA GIVE

THE SAVING GRACE ARE THE CHiLDREN COMING THROUGH
HOPE THEY’LL SEE WHATS TRUE AND LEAVE THE REST BEHIND

THE THIN FACADE OF YESTERDAY’S RACE

ALL THE HIGH RETURN OF OUR INVESTMENTS THAT BURN
LIKE A CATASTROPHIC MONUMENT IN THE SKY

WILL THERE BE ANYTHING LEFT IN 20 YEARS
IF WE WIPE OUT ALL THE FORESTS AND KILL OFF ALL THE SEAS?

ALL BECAUSE OF THE BLINDNESS OF YESTERDAYS RACE

IF WE COULD LEAVE BEHIND THE TROUBLES
START AGAIN EACH DAY
I HATE TO BURST A BUBBLE
BUT I THINK THAT IT'S THE ONLY WAY
Track Name: The Long Haul
THE LONG HAUL Words & Music by P.PASCOE

OLD DOG     NEW TRICK     
HOLD ON A MINUTE
I’LL BE WITH YOU   WON’T BE LONG

I’M IN FOR THE LONG HAUL 
THE WHOLE TRIP- I'M IN
YOU CAN COUNT ON ME 

FOR THE WEEKEND    IN ABOUT 20 YEARS
THROUGH DIFFERENT SEASONS    OH I'LL BE THERE

WELL THE WIND BLEW ALL NIGHT  
THE DAWN APPEARS
THE BIRDS WERE TELLING US IT'S CLEAR

WE'RE SAFE HERE ALRIGHT  
YOUR ARMS  AROUND ME 

FOR THE WEEKEND    IN ABOUT 20 YEARS
THROUGH DIFFERENT SEASONS    OH I’LL BE THERE

DIDN’T KNOW I WAS  FALLING 
BUT I OPENED MY HEART LIKE A WINDOW TO THE STORM
I THANK MY STARS YOU WERE LOOKING FOR MY SIGNAL IN THE SKY
SAYIN’ SO MUCH MORE

THAN A WEEKEND      THROUGH DIFFERENT SEASONS.
YEAH YEAH YEAH

THE BIGGER STORY IS COMPLEX, WELL THAT'S TRUE
THE SIMPLE MATHS IS: ONE AND ONE IS TWO
THE HAPPINESS HAS WASHED AWAY THE BLUE
I'VE KNOWN IT SINCE I MET  YOU
Track Name: The Best Story
THE BEST STORY Words & Music by P.PASCOE

THE AFTERNOON CLOUDS MOVE
LIKE A WATER COLOUR DRIFTING BEHIND THE TREES
THE GREY UNCERTAINTY THE INDECISION
THEN THE RAIN FALLS TO WASH AWAY THE DOUBT

AS YOU WRITE YOUR STORY
YOU FIND YOURSELF WALKING THROUGH YOUR DAY
IT'S LIKE NOBODY ELSE’S, YOU'RE ON A RIDE
COURTESY OF YOUR WILDEST DREAMS

ONE DAY WITHOUT KNOWING IT
YOUR MEMORIES ARE EDITED, EVEN MORE
AS THE YEARS GO BY
A SERIES OF GLIMPSES INTO WHATEVER STORY YOU WROTE

THE CLOUDS HAVE LIFTED WITH THEM MY SPIRIT 
IN THE BRIGHTER LIGHT I'M COMFORTED
I’M WRITING THE BEST STORY I CAN

AS THE DAYS GO BY YOU LEARN
FROM YOUR HAPPY ACCIDENTS DONT KEEP A SCORE
AS THE DAYS GO BY
ALL THE MAGIC BITS GO IN TO
WHATEVER STORY YOU WROTE

THE CLOUDS HAVE LIFTED WITH THEM MY SPIRIT 
IN THE BRIGHTER LIGHT I'M COMFORTED

THE CLOUDS HAVE LIFTED WITH THEM MY SPIRIT 
IN THE BRIGHTER LIGHT I'M COMFORTED

I’M WRITING THE BEST STORY I CAN
Track Name: Long Long Road
LONG LONG ROAD Words & Music by P.PASCOE.

OF ALL THE PEOPLE YOU MEET THERE’S ONLY
A HANDFUL WHO’LL TAKE THE TIME
TO HELP YOU CHANGE

SO SOMETIMES WE ALL GET LONELY 
ON A DAY WHEN THE SUN DOESN'T SHINE
WE’RE DOWN ON OUR LUCK
THAT’S WHEN WE SEEM TO FIND

IT’S A LONG LONG ROAD.    YOU’LL FIND OUT
IT’S A LONG LONG ROAD....    YOU’LL FIND OUT 
IT’S A LONG LONG ROAD

OF ALL THE CHOICES THAT WAIT THERE FOR YOU
ONLY YOU WILL TRULY KNOW WHAT'S RIGHT
THEN ALL THE PIECES WILL FALL TOGETHER
YOU HOLD SOMETHING   THATS SHINING BRIGHT

AND NO ONE    CAN TURN THE KEY
IT’S A LONG LONG ROAD.    YOU’LL FIND OUT
IT’S A LONG LONG ROAD....    YOU’LL FIND IT HERE
ON PLANET EARTH
THAT THE SEARCH WAS WORTH IT
TO FIND YOU

I’M HERE TO REMIND YOU

THE KEY’S IN YOUR HAND.       IN YOUR HEART WOH
AND WE UNDERSTAND THAT ITS LOVE    WOAH

IT’S A LONG LONG ROAD.    ..........YOU’LL FIND OUT
IT’S A LONG LONG ROAD....    ....YOU’LL FIND OUT 

IT’S A LONG LONG ROAD.    YOU’LL FIND OUT
IT’S A LONG LONG ROAD....    YOU’LL FIND IT HERE
ON PLANET EARTH
THAT THE  SEARCH WAS WORTH IT 

IT’S A LONG LONG ROAD.
Track Name: Everything Comes To An End
EVERYTHING COMES TO AN END Words & Music by P.PASCOE

EVERYTHING COMES TO AN END
LOVING YOU IS THE ONLY THING THAT’S TRUE

AND WHEN WE'RE AFRAID WE PRETEND   IT’S COOL
AND THEN WE FIND A DOWNHILL SLIDE TO THE OTHER SIDE
COS EVERYTHING COMES TO AN END

THERE’S A TALE I HEARD AS A CHILD
CAN’T RECALL    THE END, I’M SURE IT SAYS

OF THE TRIALS WHEN WE SEARCH IN THE WILDS
DEEP WITHIN,     GOT TO FIND THE PEACE BEFORE WE GO ON
IS THERE REALLY SOMETHING WRONG WITH OUR SONG.?

I JUST DONT SEE WHY  WE DON'T EVEN TRY 
TO SEE IT THROUGH
WINTER’S WEARY SIGH    SATURDAY WE CRIED.  
THE WEEK WAS TURNING BLUE

LONGING FOR A CHANGE OF SEASON   YEH  WE'RE MOVING ON

IT'S WRONG TO IGNORE THIS BUT THAT'S NO REASON 
FOR TELLING YOU 
ALL MY DOUBTS AND WORRIES

WHEN EVERYTHING COMES TO AN END
YEH SO SOON THE PAIN GETS WASHED AWAY

YOUR GRIN REAPPEARS MY OLD FRIEND
WHILE THE MOON SOOTHES THE HURT AWAY TO ANOTHER DAY
IT’S A CHAPTER, THEN
COS EVERYTHING COMES TO AN END
Track Name: Tenderness
TENDERNESS Words & Music by P.PASCOE.

THIS PICTURE'S BLUE   THE PAINTED SKY
REFLECTS MY MOOD   PLEASE REMIND ME WHY

IF LOVE IS TRUE WHY’S IT BLIND?
OR IS IT ALL THE HURTS   WE CAN'T LEAVE BEHIND?

LONELINESS IS ONLY THIS  
WHEN YOU’RE THE OWNER OF AN UNCLAIMED KISS
REMEMBER TENDERNESS WAITS FOR EVERYONE

WE'RE INCLINED TO LOSE OUR WAY 
AS WE TRY TO FIND A WAY TO SAY
WHATS DEEP INSIDE, THE STRONGEST MEMORIES WILL STAY

THEN WE RETURN   WE’VE BEEN THERE BEFORE
LOVE’S ROULETTE WHEEL HAS NO FAVOURITES

WE TAKE THE CHANCE   WHO KEEPS SCORE?
TAKE A SOULFUL DANCE    AGAIN TO FIND US

WAITING FOR OUR BIGGEST WISH      TO COME TRUE
CATCHING THAT ELUSIVE FISH
REMEMBER TENDERNESS WAITS FOR EVERYONE

CARRY US AWAY TODAY    AS WE FIND  A WAY TO SAY
WHATS DEEP INSIDE, THE STRONGEST MEMORIES WILL STAY

AND THE DREAMS WE HOLD 
AND THE TRUTHS WE’RE TOLD WILL LEAD TO HAPPINESS 
AND THE CREAM WILL RISE TO TOP
SWEET SURPRISE IT’S HAPPINESS
